    I want to install an OME lift kit, do the Big Brake Mod, and replace my LBJ.

    I'm hoping to find some help to do any of them or a shop that won't mind me hanging around and watching while it's done. (Who minds that?)

    If you can offer help or recommend a shop, holler at me.

    Try someone in the Roseville/Sacramento area, a good group of guys there. Too far for me though. All of it is pretty easy, I just don't know what a LBJ is.

    LBJ's = Lower Ball Joints.

    I've tried Sac. in the past and never found any love there. Seems like a closed group of guys. But maybe I'll try again.

    What part of the bay are you in?

    We don't allow 'outsiders' into our group......




    haha, all jokes aside, most of us are getting burned out from doing lift kits, thats why you don't get much response from us.

    Bigger brakes should be an easy install... that I could do in my driveway. Another lift, I'm not well suited to do it personally. My tools have been growing legs. I could do it but its alot of work.

    I hate replacing ball joints. That is all.

    If you have your coils assembled and you could just bolt everything in, I will consider helping you with your lift. And by that I mean, you will likely be doing all the work and I will show you what to do. I watch too many people do all the work for another member, they don't even get their hands dirty. It benefits us all if you can learn to do it, and pay it forward and help another member.

    I will be unavailable for a couple months and with winter coming on, the weather will be less conducive for this. My garage is not big enough. Feel free to send me a PM and I will do what I can, but I wont be back until Turkey day at earliest.

    You could try J&M Offroad in GV or there is another place called 4X4 Labs that works on Land Cruisers mainly but I have never been in there
